The biggest machine in the world
Our time - this is the era of machines. Man does not possess sufficient muscular strength to move heavy objects, lift boulders excavated from the earth tons of rock. But we have the mind and long since become used to heavy work assistants or various devices.
In ancient times, it was a variety of hobbies and simple tools: levers, blocks, winches. As time went on, progress is not standing still. The restless human mind is able to "tame" the forces of nature such as water, steam and electricity. People have learned to create huge mechanisms that perform for us the most difficult and dangerous work. The dimensions of some of them, indeed, impressive. We have prepared for you a list, which includes the largest machine in the world.
mining machine Bagger 288
Dumper Liebherr T282B
To remove dirt that is removed from the ground mining machines of this size, you need the appropriate dump. And he, of course, there is. It may be added that all the trucks, which are used in mining, different huge size.
One of the biggest is considered dumper Liebherr T282B. Its length is 14, 5 meters, height - 7, 4 meters and width - 9 meters. This monster weighs 232 tons, and transferred at a time he is capable of 363 tons of cargo. Engine power of this giant of 3650 horsepower.
Hit the wheel of this car - they are simply enormous. It is worth noting that the wheels are always in short supply - they simply do not have time to produce.
Another giant truck which is used to work in the quarries. He is the second in the world in terms of its capacity. For once this giant can convert 345 tons of cargo. These machines are used in the iron, coal, copper and gold mines. Their owners have long felt that a lot better to have one big car than a few small.
Terex 33-19 "Titan"
Another truck, which was built to work in mines and quarries. It was made in a single copy in the plant of General Motors in 1973, and at one time it was the largest truck in the world. This machine can be transported at a time up to 350 tons of cargo. Now the giant has already retired and is a landmark in one of the museums.
Another giant machine that works in quarries and coal mines. The height of the truck exceeds the height of a three-storey house. At one time it can carry 320 tons of cargo. The noise of the motor truck is so strong that the people working in it only in special headphones. Tank capacity - more than 4300 liters.
crane Mammoth the LTM
Cranes on the basis of car is very convenient. They are mobile, they can be transported to any place within a very short period of time. They have one drawback - they are rather small capacity. German engineers have decided to remedy this situation and created a monster: Mammoth crane LTM.
It is the largest crane on a wheeled chassis in the world. This car nine pairs of wheels. He can lift 1,200 tons to a height of 180 meters. The car has a hydraulic support, on which it relies in its work. Preparing for use takes eight hours.
bulldozer D575A-3 sd
It is the largest bulldozer in the world, which is able to move the volume of soil a few times more than a conventional bulldozer. Designed and manufactured this machine in Japan. It has a very impressive settings. The height of the bulldozer is 4, 9 meter length - 12, 5 meters and width - 7, 5. Weighing machine 152, 6 tons, i.e. as much as three modern weigh tank
Considered the largest machine in the world. It was established in a single copy and is currently working in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. This machine is used for coal mining to provide one of the cities with electricity.
Coal is mined in the quarry, and the coal seam at a depth of more than thirty meters. Goliath task to get to the coal and extract it. The height of the excavator is 65 meters, it has a length of an arrow 122 meters, and the bucket weighs 250 tonnes. In this excavator is able to move independently, though not very fast. He moved with the help of special skis, which he transposes one after the other. The speed of this movement is 320 meters per hour. Controlled machine just two people, but for its maintenance requires a whole team of mechanics.
During one shift, this excavator can take out 48 thousand tons of soil from the ground.
